In yet another apparent screw-up by the gaggle of two-bit politicians and mainstream media hacks who continue to carry on with their Russian hysterics, they overlooked banning one of the stellar pieces of music played on this day to celebrate American independence – Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. How is this possible?
Not to worry – odds are that come this time next year, all references to history, taste, class and beauty will be outlawed here in the States and we’ll be left with waving sparklers at one another and forced to sing Barney’s theme song to celebrate our sameness.
Before sanity is vanquished, we provide the spectacle, wonder, beauty and power of Tchaikovsky’s genius this Independence Day. (Headphones on, volume cranked and fireworks in hand for maximum enjoyment!)
